Transported: Public Art Trail for Crowland

Deadline: April 27, 2015, 5:00 pm

Transported is working with the Crowland Parish Council to create the first of a series of public art commissions which will begin a trail, with the history and heritage of the town as its theme.

An active committee of local citizens who will help guide the project has been created, consisting of David Searle, Sybil Speechley, David Kempton, Linda Boor, John Parnell, a representative from South View Primary School and Margaret Beardshaw. It is hoped that there will be further opportunities for the local community and school to get involved with the project either through participating in it or being consulted about it.

The deadline to submit an expression of interest is Monday the 27th of April 2015, but before then there are two open days for any interested artists so they can visit Crowland and meet the people who are involved in this project. These Open Days will be taking place on Friday the 27th of March at 11am and Monday the 13th of April at 2pm at Crowland Abbey.

Shortlisted applicants will be notified by 5pm on 1st May 2015. Applicants who have not heard by 5pm on this date will not have been shortlisted.

Up to 6 artists or teams will be shortlisted for each proposal.
An honorarium of £500 per shortlisted party will be available to assist with the preparation of site specific, more detailed proposals and shortlisted applicants will be invited to present their proposals on 8th June 2015.
